This picture was taken on the border between Alberta and Saskathewan on the CN Wainwright Sub. The Kenola is in full bloom.

A few years ago we took a motorcycle ride across BC and Alberta, to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan for a rally. The Kenola fields were beautiful.

On New Year's Day of 2006 the incident command team I lead was deployed to the Sacramento-San Joaquin Delta area here in California where we spent 5 days patrolling and reinforcing flood defenses of Twitchell Island and some of the surrounding islands. On Jan 2nd, inspecting flood fight activities on Twitchell Island with my Operations Chief, the skies started to clear and the sun came out right at sunset bathing the island in gold light and a rainbow developed to the northwest. I was struck the peacefulness of the scene when just the day before hurricane force winds were blowing water over the side of the levees and eroding the back side. We very nearly lost the island New Year's Day.

If you're wondering, in the foreground is a relatively large ring of sandbags used to slow down and render harmless a "boil" along the side of the levee. The San Joaquin River is to the right. On that day, the high tide of the year was occurring, with west winds from SF Bay holding back outflow from the Delta, and flood release flows in the rivers. Just the right conditions to lose an island in the Delta (i.e. our "perfect storm").

Excellent shot! I’m glad you could join in Rick. It was a fun day.

Here’s a shot of Rick “on the street”



Street Photography is one of my ways to relax because there are no rules though it does require the ability to focus and compose very quickly plus a bit of audaciousness. Here’s another…

You only catch this sort of real life action “on the street.” You have to be open to the messiness and break the rules (i.e. photography-wise).

Thanks Rich.

I liked the first picture of me better. The second one just proves that I should stay behind the camera.

My daughter Jacklynn who was bored out of her mind and wanted to go home.

There's a NYC Street Photography slide show of 58 photos over on my website In the Viewfinder.

I shot a lot of B&W when I first got into photography, because that was all that was affordable. Never did very many "artsy" photos though and don't have many examples. Here's one I found, a shot in a local courthouse of their stairway that was made from stone, I think the steps were all interlocking or something similar, no mortar or such. Pointed my camera directly up with a 28mm lens:

"Hey maybe I should make that my icon!" Go for it. I'd be honored.

"I hope she wasn't to peeved with my teasing." Not at all.

This is Jason, another member of the "Boston Mob".

Under attack.

Throw some stuffed fish into the air at a CF-5 monument and you have a real fighter duel. Look at those G turns.
